Disturbance of Public Meetings

It was a misdemeanor at COMMON LAW to be guilty of conduct that tended to disturb a public assembly, though the prosecution, in most instances, was required to prove that the disturbance was caused wantonly or willfully. In most jurisdictions there is statutory crime for such conduct and the disturbance need not be so turbulent as to constitute a RIOT.
